What is the difference between steel sheet and steel plate?

A steel plate is essentially a thicker version of a steel sheet. The increased thickness provides enhanced durability, making it suitable for more demanding applications. Steel plates are commonly utilised in situations that require heightened strength and resilience. Additionally, steel plates can undergo specific finishing processes to create a piece of steel perfect for the users requirement.

What thickness is your steel plate?

Our steel plates comes in thickness form 6mm to 6oomm depending on the grade of steel required.

In addition to thickness, steel plate can also be measured using gauge, which is commonly referenced in manufacturing and industrial settings. As a general guideline, a higher gauge number indicates a thinner metal. Gauge serves as another measurement parameter, particularly in manufacturing and industrial applications, to describe the thickness of steel sheets and plates.

Is steel plate produced differently?

The thickness of the metal also determines the production method employed. Hot rolling is a more cost-effective approach suitable for situations where the metal does not require precise dimensional finishing. This is because hot-rolled metal tends to experience slight shrinkage or distortion during the cooling process. In large-scale construction projects using structural steel, these minor variations are less critical, making hot-rolled plates a common choice.

What are the uses of steel plate?

Steel plates are frequently employed as structural steel to reinforce foundations and support heavy loads, such as in the construction of bridges. They also serve as a sturdy base for assembling larger structures and non-workable components. The application of steel plate depends heavily on the unique requirements of each project. Compared to steel sheet, plate metal possesses greater thickness, resulting in enhanced durability.

What steel thickness do I need?

If you’re uncertain about what thickness steel plate you require, the key question to ask yourself is: How much strength does the final product require? If you need a high level of strength, we can guide you to the right steel plate that will be the most suitable choice for your project.
